Jane Glover may be an Oxford graduate, but she was having a hard time remembering a few lines from a poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson.

“What is that wonderful quote from Tennyson?” asked the distinguished British conductor and scholar.

“It’s from ‘Ulysses.?”

She paused for a moment, and then she remembered: “I am a part of all that I have met; yet all experience is an arch wherethrough gleams that untraveled world, whose margin fades for ever and for ever when I move.”

Glover, who conducts Haydn’s monumental “The Creation” at the Balboa Theatre on April 4, was responding to a question about how the different aspects of her musical life inform one another.
